A Genius WAy To Grow Juicy, Tasty Tomatoes

When a DIY gardener posted these jaw-dropping photos of his tomato plants online, everybody wanted to know her secret. Amanda Mary (Mary) had to share the news. Yet, no-one could imagine that a simple plastic wastebasket could actually accelerate the plant’s growth that much!

According to Mary, He “started May 28th planting 4 tomatoes around a garbage can with holes drilled in the bottom rim and a second row up about 10 inches, buried the can to where the top holes just barely were above the ground, put in two shovels full of compost…”.


Then, she filled up the can with water every 2 days and tried not to water the leaves. “These four plants are now 5 ft 4 inches in less than a month and a half and loaded with green tomatoes and about a hundred sets of tomato blossoms.

This cheap, yet highly effective method that Bryan developed, is based on drilling a row of holes around the bottom rim of the wastebasket, and a second row about 10 inches higher.

After burying the can in the ground, the second row should be barely visible above the ground. The wastebasket is then filled with 2 shovels-full of compost.

Four tomato plants are planted around the trash can, supported by a metal fence. Every 2 days, the trash can is filled with water.

He used a 13 gallon kitchen garbage can to grow the tomato plants above but has since switched to using 5 gallon buckets because they’re a lot cheaper and easier to find. Larger cans can be used as well. Just make sure you provide each plant with the 5 gallons of water per week.

Go ahead and give it a try! You will be amazed by how quickly and easily the plants grow this way. Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.

About the Author

Amanda-Mary
With almost twenty years spent researching and treating Cancer, I am a well respected author, teacher and health coach.

I do have a list of qualifications, but I find them cumbersome and false. The fact I am a qualified Holistic Doctor is neither here, nor there. Medical education is entirely corrupt and something that can be used against you. I go on courses in order to learn, not to buy a badge to hide behind, or a stick to beat people with.

So much nonsense has been written about me that I never read, or choose to absorb. It’s all about them, never about me. I have been attacked and targeted simply because I have helped people and not been silenced. A common misconception is that I am holistic, but the truth is I do not sit on either side of the imaginary divide between what is “mainstream” and what is “holistic.” There is greed and corruption on both sides and examples of bad practice in every field.
Personally, I am only interested in what works and improves the life of the patient.

In some cases, radiation can work and so am happy to recommend that route, if it works and saves a life in an emergency situation. But there is no ‘one size fits all’ and no cookie cutter protocol. There are many variables in healing the body. We are all individual and all capable of change, so each case must be considered individually. What works for one, may not work for another. Mass medication is wrong.
My research and work has led me all over the world and got me into some tight spots at times, but I am thankful for every twist and turn and have learned a lot from each. I am wiser as a result and see that life teaches us all. I recovered from breast cancer 20 years ago, which has saved my life over and over and made me very aware of how fleeting and precious life is. I live each day to the full and as if it were my last.
I have twenty children, many of whom are adopted, four are mine naturally. I love and adore them all and am honored to have been able to raise them, for now they are strong and independent adults. My children are the most important people in my life.

I despise materialism, I have old fashioned views and feel the modern world has lost much in the way of values and common decency. So I travel the world with my partner and 6-year-old daughter, helping people and sharing knowledge. I am still learning and feel that everyday is a school day. The reason I started this blog was so I could pass on some of this knowledge to others.

I speak the truth about everything and my honest approach shocks many, as I tend to say the things most people would not. I focus on solutions, as I am a problem solver at heart and there is only one truth. Stick to the truth and you will never go far wrong.

I hope you enjoy our blog site and the articles we labor over for your benefit. Please donate to the cause on the page above, as we do not receive a penny in advertising, or sponsorship. It is all from the heart.

Love and light.
